“‘Bob's Burgers’ is one of those rare finds that just continues to outdo itself, creatively,” he said Reilly. “The show has become a key member of our Sunday Animation Domination family, and we're looking forward to attracting new fans with another season.”

Last season, the show was a Top 10 comedy among men 18-49 and men 18-34, as well as male teens. It also posted year-over-year gains.

The show follows Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob's Burgers with his wife, Linda (John Roberts), and their three kids, Tina (Dan Mintz), Gene (Eugene Mirman) and Louise (Kristen Schaal).

The 20th Century Fox Television and Bento Box Entertainment production was created by Loren Bouchard (“Home Movies”). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (“King of the Hill”) serve as executive producers and writers.

The show returns for its fourth season on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 8:30/7:30c.

    Guess, they needed to renew “Bob's Burgers” before it starts, because Fox's other new sitcoms (“Dads” and “Brooklyn 9-9”) are TANKING in the ratings early into this season and Fox is dipping into 4th-place territory overall among the broadcast nets season-to-date! And I'm guessing the massively down-trending “American Idol” will do little, if any, good in reversing this trend for Fox.

    But, hey, I'm all warm-and-fuzzy O'Reilly is stoked to order more “Bob's Burgers” just to get any kind of perceived positive traction and BUZZ to save his arse right now! Chase Carey and Citizen Rupert have to be chomping at the bit right now with how things are starting out for Fox this season so far! ;-D

      It's Kevin Reilly–why don't you call people by their right names and why don't you have the guts to sign your own name? Are you jealous that they're successful and you aren't?

        Okay, I gotta figure ANYONE with Reilly who WILLINGLY works for Far Right-leaning corporate fascistas at Citizen Rupe's “hacking” Fox (and News Corp.) comes close to sounding like notorious goose-stepper Bill O'Reilly in name — my bad for getting Kevin's last name confused! Really, my bad and thanks for pointing that out!

        Hey, I'm also really sorry it's hurts you I don't use my “real name” here, but if I am going “snark” about Fox (and News Corp.), they would HACK into my computer and phones to get back at me — like they did with the Windsor Royal family, half of Britain's citizenry and couponing/business competitors (News America Marketng mainframe hacked!) in the U.S. over the last two decades!

        Mr. Jeffries, I submit to you, but wonder why you are so QUICK to publicly defend Fox and Mr. Reilly (who I do think has a GOOD creative track record…like at FX and NBC, too, but needs something to “grab” viewers while “Idol” keeps down-trending and can't prop up primetime like it used to!) — you bucking for a series or talent roster deal? Keep on DEFENDING unethical corporate fascistas, Mr. Jeffries!
